55 Fiction: August Rain

Without warning, I come. Without shouting, I fall. I drench the world in emotions, quite unexpectedly. The crows in midflight flee; the sparrows find shelter in the trees. The devouts look up at their Gods; the atheists look up at their clouds.

I wash away the pain. If nothing, I try…

I am August Rain.


What is 55 Fiction? It is a fiction story, with all the basic elements of a narrative (plot, characters, setting, conflict), in 55 words or less (A non-negotiable rule). This post was due for some time now, considering the fact that it's about one of my favourite subjects – August Rain.

  10. @ akanksha... This has become one of my favourite styles of writing suddenly. It's the short-and-sweet feel that makes me like it so much I guess. Do write one yourself, you'll see that you enjoy it as well.

  11. Elegance and simplicity.
